A district court staff in Mansa, Punjab, has been issued a show cause notice for what the Punjab and Haryana High Court called his “Contumacious conduct” in sending an e-mail to the high court seeking permission to make a film on his experiences during service showing how judges break law and the injustice and torture caused to him and the staff.
The incharge District and Sessions Judge, Mansa has issued a notice to Harmeet Singh Tinku after a communication sent to him by the Registrar General of the high court revealed that he had sent an e-mail to the high court seeking permission to make the film.
The communication sent by the Registrar General said, “The conduct of Harmeet Singh sending such an e-mail is contumacious, which amounts to gross indiscipline/ insubordination on his part”.
The high court declined the permission to make the film and ordered that departmental action be initiated against him.
“…permission sought is declined. The In-charge, Additional District and Sessions Judge, Mansa, is directed to verify and intimate as to whether the said e-mail was sent by Shri Harmeet Singh Tinku and if found correct, initiate/ recommend departmental action against him, in accordance with law.”
